FIFA 22 has been on the market for almost 2 weeks, being a real success in every way, since the initial sales in the different territories make it clear that Electronic Arts title is still the king of Christmas.
However, this may not be repeated in later years, or at least not with the same nomenclature, since for a day the possibility of a name change in the saga has been around the network, being so this would not be unusual in view of the switch from Pro Evolution Soccer to EFootball.
Nevertheless, rather than revitalize the saga as has happened with the Konami title, it seems that the reason for this supposed name change in FIFA would be another, being so a report will have revealed that the problem would be in the homonymous football association itself, from where they would be demanding double the money to continue using the license.
FIFA’s name change would come from FIFA itself
This has been known thanks to the New York Times, since the last agreement to use the trademark would have a duration of 10 years, being so that these would be fulfilled next year, in 2022. As a result of this termination, the company and the association should agree, this being something that has been paralyzed because FIFA is claiming a billion dollars for each 4-year cycle of the World Cup.
No details have been given about it, but, looking at the huge success of FIFA Ultimate Team, it seems that the reason behind this move is take a percentage of itThis game mode earns EA a large part of its income. Likewise, EA would like to further exploit the saga with tournaments and digital products, as is the case with the NFT, being something that FIFA would be limiting a lot.
Be that as it may, everything seems to indicate that the name change will take place except surprise, being so that a recent record speaks of EA Sports FC. It will be necessary to see with time how this story ends.
